Key Set Entry
Flora Stieglitz Straus was Alfred’s niece, the daughter of Leopold and Elizabeth Stieffel Stieglitz.
“The pictures of Flora—especially the large head—and Daddy—they are (especially Flora’s)—just a little bigger than they can know themselves—perhaps with moments here and there approaching themselves” (Elizabeth Davidson, daughter of Alfred’s brother Leopold, to Alfred Stieglitz, 3 October 1919 [YCAL]).
